Congratulations Andrea Clutts !

 Richland School District Two has announced five finalists for 2021-2022 District Teacher of the Year. The finalists and their schools are Andrea Clutts, Spring Valley High; Valente’ Gibson, Jackson Creek Elementary; Aimee Hinks, Pontiac Elementary; Mindy McNeal, Bookman Road Elementary; and Warren Wise, Kelly Mill Middle.

“These phenomenal teachers are pursuing the Pathway to Premier with a focus on our Core Values: Learning, Character, Community and Joy,” said Richland Two Superintendent Dr. Baron R. Davis. “They are delivering premier learning experiences for students, displaying premier character in what they do, demonstrating premier commitment to our community and they are creating conditions where joy resides.”

Andrea Clutts is a Technology and Learning Coach (TLC) and she teaches English at Spring Valley High School. Clutts is National Board Certified and holds a bachelor’s degree in English and master’s in teaching from the University of South Carolina. A 22-year veteran, she hopes her greatest contribution to teaching has been that she has instilled in her students the joy and passion of learning. She is not afraid to be “corny and silly” and entertain while teaching. For Clutts, the best part of teaching English is that she gets to help students deal with real-world issues while also teaching the required standards. “Students need both windows and mirrors in their learning. They need to see beyond themselves, but they also need to see themselves in what they are reading and learning. If they can do both, the lessons will stay with them and carry them into the future.” As the TLC she has been instrumental in keeping students and teachers operating successfully during the pandemic. 

These finalists received surprise visits today from Superintendent Davis, their principals and other administrators who announced they are in the top five competing for the Richland Two District Teacher of the Year.
